Only a few years ago you could take a dvd or memstick of FreeBSD and have 1000s of packages to choose from during your install. That is broken now?

At some point it was decided that the installer should be as simple as possible and package installation was a post-install task, for once the system was up and running. I think that might be changing with bsdinstall getting pkgng support, but it did seem like a fairly major regression at the time.
